Feature Friday - WooWork

I'm going to try something new. Every Friday, I'm going to write a post featuring an artist, blog, craft, etc. that has caught my attention.

For my first Feature Friday, I would like to call your attention to the fabulously talented Howie Woo and his blog, WooWork. (He also has a flickr site well worth visiting, and is on facebook, too.)

I discovered this blog by following a link from another blog some months ago. It was to one of his Fridge Critter posts, and I've been hooked ever since! (no pun intended)

There are a lot of amigurumi creators out there, but WooWork really stands out. The items he makes are incredibly imaginative, his posts are humorous and often touching, as well. I love his writing style and quirky humour. His photos, illustrations and videos are always excellent. I even find myself looking forward to what new colour he'll have in his hair! *L* It doesn't hurt that, having lived in the Vancouver area before, with friends in and around the city, I recognise some of the places he talks about or features in his photos.

After following his blog for a while, I not only appreciate the artistic talent and craftsmanship of this artist, but I feel like Howie would be a person I'd love to spend a day hanging out with!

So, for my first Feature Friday, I heartily recommend spending some time at WooWork. It's well worth the visit!

Wow, what an honour to be your first Feature Friday! Thank you so much for your overwhelmingly kind words. I'll channel your encouraging-energy into making more fun creations this year :)

Your own beautiful crochet work is so intricate and hypnotic. You remind me that there's always more to learn when it comes to yarn work.

Thanks again for your inspiration!

Oh, and it's dark blue this month ;)

I'm glad you enjoyed the post! And thank you for taking the time to comment. I'm quite flattered you like my work, too.

And I LOVE the dark blue! :-D
